First off, do you have a way to check the output of the ac adapter to ensure it's putting out the correct current?
If you've done that and have a multimeter handy, you can remove the battery, system off, and check the charge pins for current/voltage. I believe one of the end pins is neg (ground) and at least one of the other pins should show 2.6-3.6V, as well as other various voltages. If you fail to get any response at the charger pins, we'll need to look at the board circuitry, assuming again that the ac adapter is operating properly.

Well I had the same problem with my Dell Latitude D600. I tried many batteries, fully charged, partially charged and even i tried scenarios with AC Power On or Off. Nothing really seemed to work as my laptop was both hot and cold. I noticed this problem was coming specially when laptop is cold.
The Solution is found is, when i have this problem, i press the power button and then move the rotate the laptop, so that its screen touches the desk and keybord is upright verticle, i know it sounds ODD, but it really made my life so easier as now this problem doesnt haunt me. and it will boot on first, second or third go.
Normal Laptop Condition with keybord down and LCD Open
/ / / lcd
You need to move the laptop in one of the following if it is having boot problem again
\ / \ / \ / keybrd \ / lcd \ / \/
or put the lcd down flat while keeping the keyboard in the same position as above.
I m sorry the above illustrations are pretty rough but hope u understand what i mean :)

Unseat and reseat the memory in the laptop one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Turn on the laptop after each reseat of memory.
If that doesn't work then take out the hard drive and then the dvd drive.
Turn the laptop on again and if you still can't get video on the screen then the motherboard is defective and would need to be replaced.

It sounds like you have a bad AC adapter . When you plug it in to the outlet in the wall and into your computer , do you see a charge indicator light on the computer? I'm asking you this because even with a bad battery your computer should operate without any problems with the AC adapter plugged in.
